dnd 5e – What happens to the rider when their summoned mount is killed?

The rider should follow the rules of the mount getting knocked prone

There isn’t anything in the core rules that covers this exact situation, but a common-sense approach should be enough to make a ruling.

The Find Steed spell says:

When the steed drops to 0 hit points, it disappears, leaving behind no physical form.

The rules on mounting and dismounting state:

If your mount is knocked prone, you can use your reaction to dismount it as it falls and land on your feet. Otherwise, you are dismounted and fall prone in a space within 5 feet it.

If you combine the two, and consider that instead of going prone the mount has simply disappeared, allowing the rider to make the reaction dismount seems reasonable. If they chose not to use their reaction, then they fall prone.

A reasonable DM may decide to just call for a Dexterity saving throw from the rider as well, landing on their feet on a success, or falling prone in the dirt on a failure. But I think the rules lean more towards the dismount using a reaction. The rules on mounting and dismounting mention this:

If an effect moves your mount against its will while you’re on it, you must succeed on a DC 10 Dexterity saving throw or fall off the mount, landing prone in a space within 5 feet of it.

But in this case, the situation is not the same. The save is to fall off or stay on the mount, which clearly isn’t an option in this case where the mount doesn’t exist any more.

zfsonlinux – Proxmox – Can’t mount encrypted ZFS dataset – zfs mount fails sillently without an error

I have problems with mounting encrypted zfs dataset after boot.
Pool is properly imported and visible in zpool status output.
Then I manually load keys with: zfs load-key -a – still no issues.
And here comes the mounting part. Dataset has canmount=on and mountpoint=/mnt/ssd properties set.
Directory /mnt/ssd is empty and is not a Proxmox storage.
Command zfs mount pool-ssd fails silently. Dataset is not mounted and it is confirmed by zfs mount and by mounted property.
What have I tried:

  • removing /mnt/ssd directory
  • exporting/importing pool
  • changing mountpoint to other directory – this works but only till next reboot.
    Then the situation repeats and I have to change mountpoint once again.

I can’t make head or tail of it. There is no error, or any other clue. I tried to import and mount this dataset
on different server – one with only debian without proxmox and it works flawlessly. However after
installing proxmox there is the same problem on both machines.

It looks like proxmox is doing something after pool is imported and the original mountpoint becomes broken. Changing mountpoint to different directory works, but after reboot this other directory is also broken. Changing it again to the first one works again – so this “corruption” does not persist over reboots.

How can I debug this?

pathfinder 1e – Monstrous Mount – Animal or Magical Beast?

I am playing a Goblin Hunter. When I reach 5th level, I am considering taking the Monstrous Mount feat to gain a Worg as my animal companion. The feat says that I follow all rules for an animal companion, except where it states that it is different. I assume this means that unlike normal Worgs (which are magical beasts), a worg gained through this feat would be an Animal.

I am confused by this because the Animal type says that no creature with an Intelligence score over 2 can be an animal. Is this a case where the specific rule trumps the general rule? Or would the Worg companion be a Magical Beast? If it is a Magical Beast, is that the only feature it retains from its monstrous stat block? For instance, most Worgs have racial modifiers to Perception, Stealth, and Survival. Would my Animal Companion Worg be absent those (basically a special worg that answers the hunter’s call to become an animal companion, so it is not like others of its kind)?

mount – Dism.exe /ResetBase error on Windows server 2016

I’m executing the command

DISM /Image:E:WIMMount /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

on an offline mounted WIM Image.

I’m facing this error:

Error: 0x800f0806

The operation could not be completed due to pending operations.

I’ve tried

  1. sfc /scannow
  2. deleted C:WindowsWinSxSpending.xml
  3. Started another DISM.exe session
  4. Cleared Registry keys
  5. Mounted to different location (Mount & Re-Mount)

How to resolve this issue?

virtual machines – Apache to share a /mount where the web page is stored using the networked connection. This worked using xampp ugh. Now using ubuntu

So this page Where to put the web pages in /var/www/ or /var/www/html/ in apache? is similar to what I am asking. The rules wont allow me to ask joining questions to expand on that discussion. There are several others about /mount and fstab that are a bit of this same line of question. This is on a hyper-term vm using ubuntu server that loads from a nas also.
The nas is freenas and has a 6T raid 1 array, since I have had a few SSD drives fail rather quickly with out warning.

So I cleaned and this is the first run vhost-Errorlog: I think something might present to someone in the know. This is one call for the index.html page. Using file:/// the pages loads completely properly in firefox…?

So I tried to post the list of errors and was denied the ability.

I am not sure what I am reading here but each link does have a file that corresponds to it as the files do in fact exist so a 404 error if I am reading that does not make sense. 450 is there but i ran chown -r www-data:www-data on the folder and files… But there are still broken images on the page when it is browsed, the log also show a 200… I am confused with the error log data,

The error.log is rather long but can be posted if needed.
I do see some bits of wordpress that I installed and tried to remove which do not exist as I was not impressed with it. Not sure to what that might have done to apache if anything.

I was using a irc room and a users suggestion cause me to have to reinstall apache then was bullied by that same user when I Asked the room for another opinion. In another room a user suggested here and did not bully me so I am trying to find a solution here.

This is a rather interesting issue. Mostly working but I think this is a permissions issue maybe??? I did find a actual typo issue with some help that fixed much of the /mount issue.

How can I mount a partition to a custom directory only?

I have a PCIe SSD in my 2019 Mac Pro that I am using for running a server. Using vifs in the Terminal app, I’ve edited /etc/fstab to add this line:

UUID=B3CDE3B6-C597-407B-8A43-A2324C50427C /var/my-server apfs rw

My problem is that the same partition ends up getting mounted under /Volumes/SSD as well as under /var/my-server, and I would like to have it mounted only at /var/my-server. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Extension to shift 1/4" mount forward?

I have a 3d printed attachment for my lenses which is heavy enough to make my small tripod not balance. I would like to shift the 1/4" threaded connection forward about 2 inches. Is there a product that does this? I can’t seem to find one.

security – T2 chip encryption benefits: “Your encrypted SSDs automatically mount and decrypt when connected to you mac.”

I just read the mac page about SSD encryption by the T2 chip here

Always back up your content to a secure external drive or other secure backup location so that you can restore it, if necessary. You should also turn on FileVault for additional security, because without FileVault enabled, your encrypted SSDs automatically mount and decrypt when connected to your Mac.

I am confused. Isn’t encryption only useful when it does not automatically decrypt? This seems rather useless. I guess it prevents certain kinds of attacks: someone steals the SSD from the device using advanced techniques without stealing the whole laptop. In this case, doesn’t it just make sense to take the whole laptop?

What is the purpose of the encryption provided by the T2 chip? I know the benefits of FileVault 2 though, which also makes use of the T2 chip. However, to decrypt this FileVault you need your user password. To decrypt the initial T2 encryption, you need nothing?
